I've seen that the question of whether we could filter by user reputation has been asked before. However, what about filtering by users? Let's say, there are certain users whose questions I really appreciate, or conversely, there are certain users whose questions I sometimes don't want to see. Currently, I can't filter by user the same way I can filter by tags.

Would this be something possible but I just don't know how? Or if not currently possible, could it be a feature to be considered for addition?

I could bookmark those users' profile page to see what they have been posting, but it's not quite the same as a filter for questions. I wouldn't have to open dozens of bookmarked profile pages, for example.

It's possible to filter by a single user only, and get the same view as filtering by tag.

To achieve this, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the user profile.
  2. In the search box on top, append is:q to the user id which is already there:

    appending is:q to search box

  3. Press Enter.

That's it. You now filter the questions by that user:

Search results by user

You can also search by keywords, exactly the same as any other search of questions.
